Anyone seen these commercials where Titleist is claiming that there is little or no benefit to higher compression/softer golf balls for medium and slower swing speeds? Any truth or science behind this? (They show high speed camera pics that seem to show compression similarities, but I don't think the data for those tests is available.)
I ask because the common belief that I hear on this forum, and in real life in general is that a softer, more easily compressed golf ball will go farther for those with slower swing speeds. Also, this commonly believed theory seems to pass my own 'common sense' test.
Having said that, i'm not a scientist.. or a good golfer, for that matter!
What do we think?
